Check out these awesome kitchen images:
I know I’ve said this before. But life sure would be easier for Sarah if she could grow a foot or two taller. She still couldn’t ride all the roller coasters at Six Flags, but at least all the chairs could stay at the kitchen table!

This is an older picture from when focus and I didn’t get along. Note how a camera with a fixed autofocus mode (center weighted) has managed to only get the bottom third in focus. Awesome.

I Got Promoted!
Image by Island Capture (aka Silverph or psilver)
I thought yesterday was my last Sunday off for the entire year so I spent time with my lovely wife Tina. I always wanted to do portraiture as well as use strobes. Strobes used to confuse me a lot! Well, it still does but I have read quite a few books about it so I decided to try it before I donate all my off days to my job!
Armed with a few ideas from magazines, books, and some photographers like Joe McNally (I’m reading his awesome book, "The Moment It Clicks"), I dragged my wife and a bunch of camera gear to our favorite park, Nissequoge River State Park. Since I was waiting for the "right light", I bought a can of insect repellant, which, I forgot on top of our kitchen table! (Thanks Dee for telling me about Deet.)
My wife just got promoted to Habilitation Specialist at her state job, a co-worker gave her a balloon and a bouquet of flowers. Tina wanted me to take a few pictures of them before they rot but I had and idea — why not use them as props for a photoshoot? And that is what I did on this photo and a few more I’ll be posting in the next few days.
Here are the equipment I used for this series of shots…
Camera : Nikon D300
Lens : Nikon 70-200mm 2.8 VR
Tamron 17-50mm 2.8
Flash : Nikon SB-600 on a tripod (Bare. I don’t have softboxes, etc. yet)
Software: Capture NX / Lightroom (just for cataloging and jpg conversion. All edits were done on Capture NX.)
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, "CONSTRUCTIVELY" CRITICIZE MY WORK. This is my first time to do this. I need all the opinions I can get.
* I wanted to try "Commander Mode" on the flash but for some reason it wasn’t working right. Is there a maximum distance for it to work? Does it work on sunlight? It was working erratic for me but good thing I brought the flash cord as back up. Unfortunately, it limited my capabilities.
* Are strobes the same as flash?
